the dimensions are 3x3
i cut out an opening for a little picture on the front panel... (the pic is one i took when i went to new york, i shrunk the size and printed it on photo paper)
i used spray adhesive and stuck it to the front panel.
the by hand cut each paper with a box cutter cause i was too lazy to go to kinkos and use there rotary cutters...
then punched a hole at the top of each page and held it together with a little screw thing that usually come with photo albums...



i got the idea when i visited the Museum of Jurassic Technology  http://www.mjt.org - which btw, if you live in the la area you should totally check it out. It's located in Culver City on Venice Blvd...

but anyway, in the bookstore they had handmade books of different styles and sizes and i thought i could do that!!!
so i did... Smiley

I find the shape the clouds form in your photo eerie. Probably just me.

Very nice book; also a nice reminder how unlimited variations can be when things are handmade. Thanks for the inspiration!

Make something beautiful.

i think i've seen that book... my b/f's mom had it (if it is the same one...) and i was making some books with his little sister to keep her busy... i don't have them though they are in CO and im in CA...

btw, sorry about the missing pictures... they seem to not exist anymore. i have been having a lot of trouble with my webhosting (switching back and forth... it a long story...) and i guess i lost them in the move and they are no longer on my computer...
